Crop and Weather Report - Sept. 21

By Doug Cooper, Extension Communications

ISU Extension climatologist Elwynn Taylor, integrated pest management specialist Rich Pope and soybean agronomist Palle Pedersen are this week’s crop and weather report guests. Taylor says he expects a normal frost date this year which should benefit most crops. Pope shares how the September weather has been favorable to this year's harvest. Pedersen reports early harvesting is beginning in southwest Iowa; the cool weather earlier in the year may have cut yield potential.
